ECVB Panorama Collection

I posted this pano at the weekend on a pano Facebook page and a few people pointed out stitching errors that I'd not noticed previously, so I decided to have another go at it.After looking at the original I have to agree with them. This was one of the very first panorama images that I [...]

ECVB – Cockerill

Here's my final panorama from ECVB - this is taken from the area furthest from the control room. More super pipes for you to scroll around. Hit the full screen icon (the right hand square) once the image has loaded  for the full screen experience.   Again this is processed in a similar [...]

ECVB – Organ Pipes

This is the money shot at ECVB. Right in front of the control room facing the four massive silver pipes that extend to the ceiling. From here the true majesty of the site can be seen, it really is awesome.   This image is made from 162 images,18 shots made up of 9 [...]

ECVB – Turbine Hall

Here's the turbine hall at ECVB. Compared to the rest of the facility its pretty sparse. All of the interesting stuff is below. There are two turbines housed in here, one at the far end of the hall transversely angled to the one below. I'll not say much about this and let the images do [...]

ECVB – The Cathedral

Since the first time I went to ECVB  on a solo trip quite some time ago I have wanted to do a series of panoramas of this awesome location. The main hall is so vast that to take simple images just does not do it justice. When one arrives in here initially there is a [...]

ECVB – The Sky is the Limit

This weekend we took a trip to Belgium. I've been previously a month or so ago and was quite unsuccessful at getting the images that I wanted, I was after some panorama images of the turbine hall, but unfortunately wasn't well enough practised with the pano head so ended up coming away empty handed in [...]

Mortuary P – The Slabs

Here's one from the vaults - I was looking through some of my older photos and came across this one which I have processed before but thought it would be fun to have another go now that there are different skills in the bag. This is a mortuary at a hospital fairly close to where [...]

ECVB – The Pipes

Here's an image from ECVB - the derelict power station in Belgium. This is truly one of my urbex high points. The site is massive with loads of rusty pipes. Its on a grand scale too - over 10 floors I would guess.I was exploring alone, in a foreign country knowing that there was security [...]

Runwell – Cubicle 1

Another from Runwell. Toilet furniture was well preserved at this location - a surprise really, most urbex WCs are smashed. I cant really think why anyone would want to smash a loo, but there you go.I'm not sure what this is - its not a toilet, or a bidet. It actually looks like something I [...]

West Park – The Dancer

My exploring friend said that we were going to see 'the piano' on our journey. I'd only seen one at this location before - a big grand upstairs in one of the wards and I thought that this was were he was talking about. However I was pleasantly surprised to find this upright version in [...]

Criminal Activity

After getting my new monitor last week I seem to have been filled with more and more excitement for processing. Coupled with that the purchase of some more memory yesterday I don't have to go and make a cuppa between edits while the PC thinks about things. So I've been going through some of my [...]

West Park Asylum

West Park Asylum - what can I say?! 11-12 trips last summer, some alone, some as a couple, others in large groups rushing around trying to capture as much as possible. This is the place where I met my lovely girlfriend, learnt a lot about photography, made some excellent people and avoided security (not that [...]
